There is a distinct bench of rock that is attached to the southeast corner of Trail Lake Pinnacle. There are 2 sets of double bolt anchors with rap rings at the top of this cliff, and a number of bolted routes on the east face. This climbs the left off-width crack (small face holds) on this face. The crux is low. The right crack aopears similar.


East face of the bench below (but connected to) Trail Lake Pinnacle's northeast edge. This crack is just left of the farthest left bolt line.


Reach right to clip the 3 bolts on the face and rap off the double bolt anchor at the top. Or scramble around to the anchor to set up TR.

I believe that I did the FA of this thing back in 2001 or so. I will have to try and find one of the surviving copies of my old guidebook I did for the area to verify. If I do so, I will update info. I know we climbed those cracks, and I bolted a couple short, maybe contrived little faces routes there.

We put up a number of little routes around the base of Goliath and throughout the area. This was when I was in high school, and I'm sure many of these lines are somewhat silly and not the most intelligently designed.
